The Jets' defense lost one of its most important members early Saturday night against the Giants, but fortunately for Gang Green, it isn't serious.

Jets defensive end Leonard Williams left the game vs. the Giants with a wrist injury and did not return, the team announced via Twitter. Coach Todd Bowles told reporters after the game that Williams was simply sore and will be fine.

It was a solid night for Williams' teammate and fellow defensive end, Sheldon Richardson, who notched a sack and a pressure that resulted in an interception early in the Jets' 32-31 loss to the Giants. New York will need both Williams and Richardson if it has any plans to pressure opposing quarterbacks in 2017.

Quarterback Bryce Petty left the game with a left knee injury during the fourth quarter. He will undergo an MRI on Sunday, Bowles said.
